Collection Spotlight: Ceramics from the Southwestern Pueblos
Fuller Craft Museum has a collection of excellent ceramics made by artists from three Southwestern Pueblos: Acoma, Zuni, and Cochiti. The objects on view are all strongly grounded in the regional, tribal, and individual making practices of well-known contemporary ceramicists of Indigenous descent. The Acoma, Zuni and Cochiti Pueblos lie across Arizona and New Mexico and are some of the longest continually inhabited settlements in North America. While there are important differences between each tribes’ ceramics practices, they do share several key elements. Pueblo makers that follow traditional practices use locally found clay and pigments, build their work by hand with coils, and stone polish them once dry.
A repeated story in this exhibit is the revival of ancestral ceramic techniques and styles by makers. We celebrate these creative accomplishments, but should also frame them within the centuries-long history of violence, colonization, and cultural erasure inflicted on Indigenous communities. We ask that you be mindful of not only this history but also the resilience and ongoing, rich cultures and artistry of these tribes and individuals.
